Do you ever think about hackers?

Well, I hadn’t not often anyway, until now.

I’d changed my passwords to passphrases and thought I was safe. And then I read a recent post by Sheila Good over at Cow Pasture Chronicles which made me furious.

Not at Sheila, although as my little sister we’ve had our share of spats. But, this is not one of those times. LOL

So what made me mad? Hackers!

It seems nothing is safe from them and someone somewhere needs to find a way to stop these damn idiots. It’s becoming a game of whack-a-mole, and I for one am tired of the blasted devils invading our lives.

Sheila had a terrible, aggravating experience but we can all benefit from it. She shared below what happened to her Twitter account and how we can hopefully prevent it from happening to us. But, if God forbid, it does what we should do.

  1. Yes, I think about hackers. So far, knocking on wood, I haven’t had any dealings with them. My poor husband has, even worse–identity thief. Luckily it was discovered quickly and dealt with efficiently with the help of the most unlikely source, the IRS. Anything I deem important is in one of my internet clouds so that I’m always getting help keeping my items safe. I don’t use social media sites that much, and I stay far away from Facebook all together.
